ATS Matchup Stats | Gambling Insight!

12th ranked Virginia has won 12 straight and they can win only their 2nd ACC title, their first coming 33 years ago, with a home win over 4th ranked Syracuse.

The Orange stopped the bleeding of their 2-game losing streak with a win over Maryland in their last game. However, they did not look great in the game and they are 3.5-point underdogs on the road facing the Cavaliers.

This game will be all about defense with Virginia the top ranked team on D giving up an average of 54.7 ppg and Syracuse ranking 7th giving up an average of 58.5 ppg. Both of these teams win with defense since each does not rank in the top 240 team in the nation in scoring.

Virginia has won 17 straight home games against ACC foes.

This season Virginia is 1-3 facing ranked teams and Syracuse is 4-1.
[ad-6571516]
Trevor Cooney ranks 2nd on the Orange in scoring and he is a great shooter with a 3-pt FG% of 40.3%, but in his last 4 games he has missed 20 of his 25 3-pointers.

This is the first ACC match up between these 2 teams with Syracuse coming to the conference this season and they have won all 3 past match ups with Virginia with the last coming in 2008.

Malcolm Brogdon (14.8 ppg) and Joe Harris (11.8 ppg) lead the Cavaliers in scoring, but while they are not a high scoring team they have a deep team and the Orange will have to play solid all around defense.

C.J. Fair (16.5 ppg) was 7/23 from the floor going for 20 points in the shocking loss to Boston College, but in his last 2 games he has shot at least 50% from the floor in both. If the Cavaliers can shut him down and force him to take tough low percentage shots they will be in good shape.

Betting Trends

Syracuse is 5-1-1 ATS in their last 7 road games, 0-3-1 ATS in their last 4 games overall, and they have an Under record of 4-0 in their last 4 games.

Virginia is 12-3-1 ATS in their last 16 games overall, 10-3-1 ATS in their last 14 games following a S.U. win, and they have an Under record of 5-1 in their last 6 games.

Jason’s Pick

This one is a tough one, as I think Cuse has the better team, but they have not looked good as of late and Virginia is at home. Going with the hot team, as Virginia will win and cover the spread.

Syracuse is 13-9-2 ATS with an O/U record of 6-15-2 and Virginia is 15-9-1 ATS with an O/U record of 10-13.
